While in Hong Kong he homed his skills in Mandarin - Oriental cooking, under the watchful eye of Michelin star chefs in an array of fine dining restaurants.

This was followed by more formal training in England. His father was the original Mr Jasmine in the late sixties and seventies, so he grew up with a great knowledge of the Chinese restaurant industry. Tommy has been running the family business for the last fifteen years.

If you missed any of the recipes or cooking tips you can listen to them again here:
